The COVID-19 era is seeing a major impact on people who are feeling isolated and alone. A June 2020 report by McKinsey found that the proportion of people across Europe claiming that they felt lonely “most or all of the time” during the COVID-19 lockdown almost tripled. Lockdowns are putting mental healthcare under severe pressure worldwide. Loneliness is, of course, not a new problem; but lockdowns certainly seem to exacerbate it.
Loneliness can be measured by the sum of all vital parameters and general motion data. But, evidently, measurement on its own does not suffice to tackle the challenge of people’s loneliness. 3.LIFE is well aware that loneliness cannot be resolved just by using chatbots or other automated solutions.
“There is nothing as effective as a good human talk,” says 3.LIFE’s CEO, Patrick LEYSEELE.
This is why 3.life is working with psychologists and therapists to be in direct human contact with people who are self-isolating at home and are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
